Written by Eleanor Bergstein – screenwriter of the hit 1987 film – and directed by Sarah Tipple, the show features a bursting platter of classic pop hits including Hungry Eyes, Hey Baby and the Academy Award-winning song I’ve Had The Time of My Life.
Dirty Dancing originally opened at the Aldwych Theatre on 24 October 2006 with record-breaking advance sales of £15m – making it the fastest-selling show ever in West End theatre history. The production then became the Aldwych’s longest-running show, playing to over two million people throughout its five-year run, before eventually dancing the last fandango on 9 July 2011.
Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage, is booking through to 22 Feb 2014. So get your dancing shoes on, fluff up those 80’s hairdos and jive on down to the Piccadilly Theatre for the time of your life!
